SageNet-Optimized Networks for Healthcare
Today, it’s difficult to imagine a multi-site enterprise that doesn’t consider its network vital to successful operations. However, in the healthcare industry, fast, reliable and secure communication can literally be a matter of life and death. Beyond quality of care applications such as rapid access to Electronic Health Records (EHRs), video consultation and remote patient monitoring, healthcare providers also face increased regulatory and compliance issues for EMR/EHR systems under HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
Healthcare is a vital public service. It is also an extremely competitive business. Supporting advanced applications can increase customer satisfaction, improve efficiency, and lower costs. For example, extending payment options to include debit and credit cards can increase revenue, but it requires PCI compliance. Digital signage and kiosks can also increase sales, but require greater bandwidth.
